Lana Del Rey isn’t biting her tongue.
A little over a week after she publicly blasted Kanye West, the Grammy-nominated singer got into a heated Twitter exchange with Azealia Banks. And let’s just say things got petty really fast.
The beef apparently started shortly after Lana criticized Ye for praising the president so publicly.
“Trump becoming our president was a loss for our country but your support of him is a loss for the culture,” she wrote. “I can only assume you relate to his personality on some level.

Banks accused Lana of having “selective outrage,” and claimed she was a hypocrite for working with artists who’ve been accused of misconduct.
“To me this just looks like the typical White woman taking using a weakened target to 'pretend' to be an ally,” Banks tweeted. “Especially because you know that a white woman vs a black male will result in an immediate victory for the white woman due to societal circumstances. You wouldn’t dare challenge a black woman on her opinion because you don’t have that (much of a) social prejudice in place between.”
